Creative TRANSFORMATION starts with the writing of your first novel...

  1. Do you want to dramatically improve your CREATIVE writing skills?
  2. Do you yearn to unleash the BRILLIANT NOVEL inside of you?
  3. Do you want to experience the KUDOS of AUTHORSHIP?
  4. Or do you just want to earn MONTHLY ROYALTIES for the rest of your life?

Rob says: "Having been a freelance writer for most of my adult life, I can tell you one thing for sure:

"You don't really feel like you're in the writing business untill you've completed your first novel."

There's just something about that milestone that clicks a trigger inside your head. The one that says: "That's it, you did it. You're now a bona fide author."

And that’s something you want, right?

To be a successful author – writing novels that people want to buy so you can live the life of a freelance writer and fulfill all your goals and dreams.

Sure you do.

What's important to you?

  1. Do you yearn for the prestige, fame and riches that result from being an author?
  2. Do you want to tell your boss where to go and become a happy and successful published writer?
  3. Would you like to know all the tricks and strategies of the professionals - without having to spend YEARS learning them!
  4. How about discovering how to be talented, artistic - even a GENIUS!

So, let me ask you, right now:

"Do you want to know the easiest and best way to write and sell your first novel?"

If so, you've come to right place.

In case you don’t know me at all, I’m Rob Parnell, proud author of 31 - THIRTY ONE - #1 Amazon bestsellers, including 5 novels, a short story collection, and a popular novella series. I’ve been a freelance author for most of my life and I’ve been teaching creative writing and success strategies online for over fifteen years. UPLYRN contains the best of my resources – all in one place!


Let's get started on your new career...

A few weeks from now, you could have written a brilliant novel, full of excellent characters, compelling action and an ingenious plot. Wouldn't your friends and family be totally amazed? Wouldn't you feel fantastic about it?

Sure you would!

And that's not all - with a good book to your name, soon you can be a published author.

Imagine that - fame, respect, the ability to do whatever you wanted, whenever you wanted!

Does all this sound like your dream come true?

It doesn't have to be a dream. It's all perfectly possible.

Ask yourself:

  • Do you have a book inside you that you've always wanted to write?
    • Are there events in your life you've always had a desire to write about?
  • Do you then tell yourself (wrongly!) that you don't have the time, the talent or the energy to write a whole book?


Do you fully appreciate that within just a few short months, even weeks, you – YES, YOU, can go from wannabe author to book royalties in your sleep? And that's MONTHLY royalties that arrive like clockwork at the begining of each month!

It's really not that hard to achieve this end.

(More digital authors are becoming millionaires every year, according to ALL of the latest publishing industry studies.)

Once you know how to organize your time, take my course, simply watch my VIDEOS and soak in the skills this unique course offers you, you'll be all set to write and finally finish the novel you always wanted to create.

Most people – even some professional writers - think that writing a novel is hard. That it's something that requires dedication, talent and heaps of spare time. Amateurs think it's something that only others can do. These are some of the most persistent myths that surround the writing process.

It's All Here!

Now, I know what you're going to say.You're going to object. You're going to say that there can't possibly be an easy way to write a novel. A whole novel? As in 80,000 to 100,000 words?

Well, I used to think the same way. I believed that there was some mystery to being an author. That it was something I wanted but maybe I could never achieve. I was terrified of the seemingly enormous task of writing a book.

But, let me tell you, I wish I'd had this system when I started out. That's why I wrote it. It's the book I would have most wanted to have by my side when I started writing. A program that could have saved me years of hard earned experience!

Listen... I know what it's like to be poor - and it sucks.

I remember being so poor I once prayed for divine help - that's how desperate (and pathetic) I was!

Years ago, I was living in the virtual gutter. Dirt poor. Always struggling to pay the bills. Crazy, because I was working nine to five jobs - with various partners and children - living the "normal” life like everyone else - and yet I had the least amount of money!

hated normal life because I felt empty and dissatisfied.

I knew I had so much to offer but each day that passed seemed like a missed opportunity. I began to think I would go to my grave having given nothing to the world.

Every day, I grew more depressed until the turn of the last millennium – when I knew I just had to get myself together and simply change my life!

Sure, I’d written stories before, but THIS TIME, I decided, it would be different.

I would go all out to make it work!

Only when I listened to my heart and intuition and gave it my all to start on my dream - to write for a living - did everything fall into place. Within less than a year I was earning more than double as a writer than I'd ever earned in an office job.

The catch?

I had to write.

In that first year of freelance writing I wrote three e-books, seven short stories, two online writing courses and finally finished a massive novel.

All that changed my life, put me on the road to where I am now. Happy, fulfilled.

The Truth of It

25 years ago I was a struggling artist, scraping together money from wherever I could find it. I wrote and wrote, eventually getting published. It was hard. It was harder because I had no blueprint, no concise advice to follow. I'm a professional writer now - and have been for over a decade! I've written numerous books, screenplays, stage-plays, articles, columns and short stories. I've been published all over the English speaking world. It's been good for me.

But the truth is I would never have taken this career without my love of writing. I love writers, if you can understand that, because they inspired me to do what I do. For this reason, I've always felt somehow indebted. That's why I want to give back to writers something useful.

My Commitment to You

I've been a writer all my life.

I'm passionate about writing. Ask any of my students and they'll tell you. My great aim is to help writers no matter where they're at - to succeed. I'm dedicated wholeheartedly to this one objective.

I've also been a voracious reader since I was very young. Even now, I read 3-4 books every week - without fail. In the last year or so, I've read all the Internet has to offer on the subject of writing and self-help in this area. It is because of this that I can honestly say that this course is the best, the most complete, and the most radical new way of looking at this age-old subject that you will ever come across!

The Facts

I'm going to let you in on a secret now. Good writing can be taught.

You don't need to be a genius, or hugely talented or even clever. Good writing can be taught.

Have you ever been amazed by an author's success? Especially when their writing is average? There's a reason for it. The truth is anyone, with the right guidance, can create compelling fiction. Anyone can write a brilliant novel. Yep. Even you.

Don't Believe Me?

Ask yourself this. What makes a good book nowadays? A good read? A good story? Or well written prose and intelligent sounding words?

The fact is, modern publishers don't want great literary writing. They want stories because it's stories that sell! That's why agents and publishers continually reject a great writer and take a brilliant novel every time! Best news? Something that even publishers don't know? There are ways of creating those stories. Ways that I can show you. Here's another recent unsolicited testimonial:

Does this Sound Like You?

Over the years, I've worked with thousands of writers, on all kinds of projects. The same excuses keep coming up. I don't have the time to write. I can't get my head around this story - it's too hard.

I don't know where to start.

I'm not good enough.

I can't get this character right.

This plot doesn't work as well I thought it would.

You've probably used a few of these yourself in the past. The fact is all the above excuses are the result of wrong thinking. That's where my Easy Writing System can help you most. It goes right to heart of writers' problems and deconstructs them from the inside out. There are solutions to the problems writers face and I've found them, used them with terrific success and now, distilled them down into one incredible system! You've just got to get hold of it!

But, as I said, I know what it's like to be poor.

I grew up in a working-class home on a council housing estate in a dormitory town in the UK. My dad was a lorry driver and my mum a seamstress. My sister and I went to crappy public schools with thousands of other working-class kids. Nobody thought we had anything going for us and my parents constantly told me not to expect too much from life.

It sounds bad but I honestly used to loathe my home life and what I'd been taught to look forward to. Even at a young age, as a consequence, I vowed to do something different.

To BE different...

I promised myself I'd be an artist. A musician, a writer, whatever, it didn’t matter. It was only important that I be a creator – someone who was in control of their life and tried to make a difference, make a contribution to the world.

I didn’t want to be a poor nobody – the kind of person my parents steered me to be.

I wanted to be an author.

But not only that. I wanted to be a rich and famous author, too. And live in a big country house, be a lord of the manor, and have thousands of eager fans waiting for my next magnum opus…

Okay, I got that but – at the time – twenty years ago – I often wondered how was I ever going to make that happen.


I needed a road map – a complete instruction manual.

Of course, in those days, there weren’t things around like that. In the old days, there was nothing like this course…

So, for years, I floundered until I finally understood that the secret to success is that you have to create new things and sell them to people - and so, if you're a writer, you have to create stories – novels ideally - and then sell them, and…

...that's how you get successful!

Even NOW.

I could go on - but really, the best way for you to appreciate this course is to take it.

I promise, you'll have the time of your life.

Join me - and I'll personally help you as much as I can to get YOUR novel written and OUT THERE.
